Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Biscuits---

Most Southern tables are not considered complete without biscuits served with dinner. Sweet potato biscuits are a favorite that everyone enjoys, it is not unheard of for the biscuits to be the main dish served with butter (maybe some apple butter).....but definitely butter. Sweet potatoes give the biscuit the right texture, and they are never dry. We make "drop biscuits"  the way Big Granny did by scooping the dough. Quick and easy to make, and super tender and oh so fluffy. 

Let's make some gluten-free sweet potato biscuits! Happy baking!!
